Best Makeup Products

As you know, I love makeup! But as much as I love it, I also understand that with the amount of cosmetic products you are seeing all around you every day it can be hard to know which are the best makeup products out there. Which are the passing trends and which are the cosmetics that here to stay? I decided to put together a list of the best makeup products for my readers to make it easier to know what to buy. Here are my top five cosmetics products that are here to stay.

1. Eyebrow Filler

Your eyebrows frame your face and if they are messy and not groomed properly they can ruin your entire look. An eyebrow filler is definitely a cosmetic product that is here to stay. A well groomed eyebrow never goes out of style; NEVER! You can go with a pencil, gel, or powder that is made to fill in and shape your eyebrows. This is one of the best makeup products that you can have in your beauty arsenal. Don't believe me? Fill in and shape just one eyebrow and look in the mirror. That will be all you need to convince you, I promise!

2. BB Cream

BB Cream is a secret weapon for me. On days that I don't feel like using foundation and concealer, I smooth on some BB Cream. It's lightweight and makes your skin feel really nice. It brightens your entire face and gives you a healthy glow. Because of these reasons, it's always in my makeup bag. It's one of the best makeup products, especially when you're running late and don't have time for your full makeup routine. This is a cosmetic product that is here to stay because of all the benefits that it has in just one little tube. Tip: If you like a little more coverage, but still don't want to use foundation, try a CC Cream. It provides the benefits of BB Cream with a little bit more coverage on your skin.   Read my guide about BB, CC, and DD creams if you need more information about what they are and what they do.

3. Mascara

No matter what trends come in and go out of style, one cosmetic product that is here to stay is a great mascara. A mascara that not only lengthens your lashes but also conditions them is one of the best makeup products that you can have. It works wonders to brighten your face and make your eyes look more open and awake. I always keep a black mascara and a brown mascara on hand. I use the brown mascara when I am going for a more natural look and black mascara when I want more of an intense look. Try colors like navy blue and burgundy for a slightly bolder look without looking too "costumey".

4. Bronzer

A natural looking bronzer gives you a slightly sun kissed glow. It will make you look your best even on days you are feeling your worst. I use my favorite BB Cream followed by bronzer when I want to look refreshed and pulled together without spending a ton of time on my makeup. Bronzer will be one of the best makeup products you ever buy! Apply it where the sun would naturally hit your face and don't overdo it; use a light hand while applying. Once you begin using bronzer you will understand why it's a cosmetic product that is here to stay. After all, when does a soft, healthy glow go out of style?

5. Red Lipstick and Nude Lipstick

A red lipstick and a nude lipstick are cosmetic products that are here to stay. Every woman should have a red lipstick that makes them feel powerful and sexy, am I right? Find one that compliments your skin tone and it will never go out of style. Scared of red lipstick?  Learn how to wear red lipstick!  Pair it with a little black dress and you are ready for a night on the town. I love a good nude lipstick. It's my go to, everyday lipstick. It's pretty without being overpowering and it's very natural looking. Of course, you will find other colors that you love; pinks, mauves, browns, taupes, oranges,  but a red and a nude are 2 of the best makeup products you can have on your vanity.

I have lots of other makeup products that I absolutely love, but these are the 5 that I can't live without. If I need to grab a few things for an overnight or weekend trip, these are the best makeup products that I could take along with me and not need anything else. Trends are awesome and I have a few favorites but these are the cosmetic products that are here to stay. I will always use them and they will always be part of my beauty routine, no matter what other products I try. Do you have all of these in your makeup bag? Are there any that you think I missed? I would love to hear from you in the comments below.
